A Southampton Engagement

Last weekend was kind of a special one. We celebrated our close friends Alice and Arran's engagement with a little party in Mettricks Old Town. 

They got engaged on in early June (in fact both Dann and I were there when Arran proposed which was awesome, and being crazy pregnant I cried a lot!) so to celebrate they arranged a little get together of family and friends. 

For the perfect setting Mettricks Old Town was a must as we all spend an inordinate amount of time drinking tea and coffee, plus it's so beautifully decorated with old family photographs and is just the epitome of Southampton, and of Alice and Arran. 

It was Dann's and mine first proper night out since Henry was born too and we couldn't have asked for a nicer evening and Henry was pretty well behaved for the entire night with lots of cuddles for the happy couple before everyone arrived. 

And the evening was made extra special by Arran accepting the role of God Father to Henry alongside Alice who I had asked a couple of weeks earlier. We couldn't ask for a more perfect, inspiring and loving couple to help us guide Henry through life so we're over the moon. 

Here's some photos of the night and the venue and of course the gorgeous couple!
